Recently I worked with 2 buyers who were able to close on their dream home. After looking at several home options, they found a property that suited their growing family. The property was listed as a potential short sale and I expressed to them the need for patience.
In approximately 3 weeks the buyers had a response from the leinholder and negotiations went on for about a week after that. The transaction was able to close within about a 60 day period from the starting point, which enabled the buyers to move in to their dream home in a timely manner.
